Screaming so much because shippers from a certain ship are disrespecting Jikook. To the point of hating one of the members?!? Really, I'm trying to enjoy Jikook moments and then it's being wreck by another ship or that ship is trying to transform it into their own moment... it's so annoying. I know we can just be the better people and just "ignore it" but there's a tipping point... How do you feel about this? We're ARMY. We should support every. Member. (Just a rant💙) Sent to my favorite blogs

[I address this ask in hopes of helping others who are feeling like this. I was skeptical because this might possibly be throwing salt in old wounds but after this let’s all try to move on yeah. No more thinking about the bad stuff. We’ll cross and burn bridges when we get there if at all necessary. Let’s try to be positive.]

Firstly, if you hate a member, you’re not ARMY. Especially if you hate them based on shipping. They’re all band mates who love each other. All their relationships are nice. Secondly, I understand. Trust me, I do. But Jikook isn’t being “wrecked” by a ship, more like the shippers are going too far and being disrespectful. Ignoring it does get hard once you keep seeing it. Everyone’s different and not all can see things and ignore it. It was frustrating for me when I first got into shipping Jikook because I didn’t understand the hate. This is how I’ve dealt with it. Maybe it will help you out.

1. I just don’t put myself in the position to see it. And this may be hard for people who love or are on multiple platforms of social media. I only have tumblr. No twitter, no Insta and I rarely go on Youtube for BTS. I still get to see all the BTS related vids and all the Jikook moments from right here on tumblr or even specific Jikook oriented twitter accounts. If I have to go on Youtube, I try to not read the comments. I also only go on a specific tag (message me if you want to know because the haters appearently like lurking and I’d rather they not infiltrate the little sanctuary I’ve discovered to filter the hate). Don’t go in other ships tags. You don’t need to. I see all their moments when BTS vids come out and that’s it. I don’t need their analysis or their thoughts or opinions, that’s theirs. I have mine. Don’t torture yourself by going in other ships tags, heaven only knows why they do it. Also make sure you can handle the people you follow. If you know they post certain things that will agitate you to the point of no return, don’t follow them. I’m not saying to hate them, but know your limits and how much you can handle. Don’t bite off more than you can chew. 

2. When I do see it (and this is just my personality) I laugh. And this is just me. But I find it incredibly hilarious (and baffling tbh It’s kinda flattering too) that they feel so… threatened idk(?) that they have to conjure up unnecessary hate for a ship they say isn’t real and could never be. That they have to make sure we know how wrong and crazy and delusional they think we are. If it’s so fake then why bother yourself coming to us. And maybe I am crazy! lol because all it’s doing is making me more deep rooted in my ship. It’s just solidifying my stance. And I’ll stick with Jikook no matter if they are romantically involved or not. Because I damn well like Jikook and they can’t tell me what I should and shouldn’t like!! I’m shipping FFS!! I will have fun dammit!! lol With them “transforming” moments into theirs, it’s inevitable really. Because they will always have their view of a situation. Technically we’re all probably “transforming” some moments into each others. BUT sometimes there are solid moments for a ship and some people need to use some common sense sometimes and just accept some things. But like however you see a moment, remember, don’t shove that perspective down another’s throat.  

3. I talk with someone. Preferably privately so our dashboards won’t be full of rants and vents. I will admit that there are times when it comes to a tipping point and I have to vent to someone but not because they’re ruining Jikook moments. Let it be known that nothing can ruin a Jikook moment because Jikook is fricken’ beautiful ok! lol. But because their logic and what they come after us saying is often hypocritical and doesn’t make any sense. Their actions don’t make any sense. They fail to realize that they are shipping as well. No one is superior. I’m not saying you can’t say your ship is the best, but you share those ideas within your circle. Don’t go into other ships circles and try to drown them out with your opinions. That’s antagonizing and disrespectful and frankly shouldn’t be happening since we’re all supposed to be ARMY. 

4. I spread more Jikook|Kookmin Love or any love. There’s no time like when people try to bring you down than to start spreading the love even more. Start posting and fangirl/boying and fawning over Jikook so much that all the hate gets drowned out and buried. Bring up old moments. Reminisce on iconic ones. Fangirl/boy over moments you still can’t get over. Just bring on the LOVE!!! LET THE LOVE FESTER AND STEW AND PERMEATE THE AIR WITH WONDERFUL GOODNESS AND HAPPINESS AND LAUGHTER AN- lol sorry I’m just tired of these inner fandom wars. BUT REALLY SPREAD THE LOVE!!

ALL IN ALL: Don’t degrade/hate other members and ships for the sole reason of shipping. That’s wrong. Stay in our lane. I wish some would stay in theirs. I’m sorry I can’t tell you how to react to the hate, that’s a personality thing, but try not to put yourself in places to see it. AND MOST OF ALL HAVE FUN!! WE ARE SHIPPING!! IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE FUN!! SPREAD THE LOVE!!!! Hope this helps!

P.S I’m flattered that I’m one of your favorite blogs. Thank you and much love ❤️

For all that you’ve given us, we wish you happiness in return. We admire that you are able to pull through after times of sickness and adversity and are always open to learning new things. Although an “idol,” it is the everyday admirable human traits that you possess that are what make you awe-inspiring in our eyes.
